PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, USA - Venus Williams added to her impressive trophy case just two weeks ago, winning the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, her biggest title since 2010. Williams extended her stunning Dubai win streak to 15 matches, picking up her third consecutive Dubai title.

Williams made it look easy, defeating five Top 40 players, including two Top 15 players - Ana Ivanovic and Caroline Woznaicki - en route to a final clash against Alizé Cornet. From there Williams reeled off seven straight games to clinch the title.
